Suspect of Pasco armed robbery was arrested in Kennewick.

According to a Kennewick Police news release Juan Manuel Reyes,25, was wanted for stealing a vehicle at gunpoint in Pasco earlier this week.

Saturday afternoon a citizen called dispatch and reported that the suspect was in the area of North Morain Street and West Clearwater Avenue.

At about the same time an off duty Kennewick Detective called with the same information and named the suspect as Juan Manuel Reyes.

Kennewick patrol units found Reyes at a bus stop and took him into custody.

Kennewick Police say Reyes had a realistic looking BB handgun in his waistband when he was arrested.
